It's Like Déjá Vu, All Over Again:  Evolving Pricing Models for E-Books

Sunday, January 13, 4:00-6:00 pm

Radisson Plaza, Crystal Ballroom

They're not journals, but with proliferating pricing models, access fees, a variety of platforms, and a host of questions about future directions, e-books are the e-journal's kissing cousin.  Addressing questions about what they need and want in models for providing and pricing e-book content are:

Dennis Dillon, Associate Director, University of Texas Libraries

Michael McCullough, Sales Manager, Duke University Press

Leo de Vos, Head of Pricing, Elsevier

Scott B. Wicks, Interim Assistant University Librarian, Cornell University

Please join us for a lively exchange of positions and ideas!

For more information, please contact Clint Chamberlain (chair; or Kim Steinle (vice chair; of the Journal Costs in Libraries Discussion Group.
